Hi..
According to clinical studies in which side effects of Micardis are documented, hair loss was not reported as either a rare or common side effect. but in some people, it's possible that a medicine may cause a side effect that hasn't been reported before.
if you are taking Micardis and hair loss occurs, your healthcare provider may consider another medicine to treat your high blood pressure.

good luck
